Fin Garden; History

The garden was first designed and established as a recreational facility for the powerful Safavid Shah, Abbas I in early 17th century and was expanded during the reigns of the rest of Safavid kings. When the Qajar King, Fat’h Ali Shah took the throne, Fin Garden gained even more popularity with the royal family and its architecture got richer and richer. However, despite all its beauty, Fin Garden in Kashan came to be the setting of one of the ugliest events in the history of Iran. It was during the reign of Naser al-Din Shah Qajar(1848-1896) whose very popular Prime Minister, Mirza Taqi Khan Amir Kabir was envied by the royal family and later on was assassinated in Fin Garden’s bathhouse. Amir Kabir had caused a lot of systematic improvements in Iran in fields of education and is known to be Iran’s first reformer and modernizer. It is commonly believed that Naser al-Din Shah Qajar himself had consented to Amir Kabir’s assassination and that the Shah was encouraged to do so by his mother.

Fin Garden's Structure

Pleasantly shaded by its tall, ancient cypress tree, Fin Garden occupies a 2.3 hectare piece of land. All around the garden, there are a lot of fountains and pools whose water comes from a natural spring called Soleimanieh Spring. The abundant water from the spring and the highly technical architecture of the pools and fountains have made the use of any water pumping system unnecessary.
